The Shadows of Houses is a three-person show featuring black and white photographs from Terry Boddie, Shakia Lewis, and Cesar Melgar. The title of exhibition is taken from Newark native Amiri Baraka’s poem “Legacy,” a mediation on history and home. Melgar’s street photography cast a sharp eye on the inhabitants and city of Newark. Selections from Lewis’ series, The Value of Hope, focus on the small details of the subjects lives in an attempt to transform over-determined narratives of homelessness. Boddie’s pictures capture fleeting moments of intimacy between people and their environments.
